I eat jerky from my nutrition store. The macros are great. I have BBQ and Teriyaki, they're great after a work out. I'll eat two, and it'll only cost me about 180 calories, for me that's great!
I always take Greek yogurt or Nosa yogurt to work. I eat town of berries. I love berries. Blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries.
I'll eat banana or apple before cardio.
I'll take pistachios to work. I also love cucumber with hummus, it saves you the carbs from pita bread ... TRY IT!!!
I also like hummus sandwiches with pumpernickel bread.
Yes this has been a huge lifestyle change for me. I've always been motivated for the wrong reasons in the past, and finally I'm not only motivated but determined... and that determination is the KEY!
Plus, I'd love to be a wellness NP. I sometimes daydream of owning a wellness clinic (NOT weight loss) but wellness. With a nutritionist, kitchen, gym, exercise specialist, and massage therapist on site. It's a daydream not a plan lol.
Motivation - "I'm so excited let's DO this"
Determination - "I'm about to work 12 hours and I wanna sleep more and this sucks bad but I'm gonna work out, because I'm determined despite my lack of ambition right now"
Motivation waxes and wanes.
